In an interview, Jonathan White, a Colorado Geological Survey geologist at the site, told reporters on Tuesday that a second possible landslide seems inevitable because of an upsurge of water in a depression created by the previous slide. White also said ‘‘we’re having a significant amount of runoff that’s flowing into that depression right now and that’s indeed a big concern.’’ White asserted it is tough to predict when the second landslide would occur. “It could be years from now,” he said.

You need salt, moisture, and energy to liquify the earth. A vibration can feed the energy part, so can energy from wind or lightning or even heavy raindrops pounding the earth. Currents are naturally present in many places on this planet, these natural electromagnetic hotspots are probably more apt to have landslides. This same thing happens for avalanches. Stored energy is released by a shock wave.
